In this there are two possibilities: 1. The lead is not compatible to connect both of the devices. 2. Or the lead is faulty. You can also try to use an amplifier.
Go to this below mentioned website and select your ipod and your kenwood and see the compatible adaptor and use that to connect.

Iphone 6 wont charge when docked on lightning dock


iPhone 6 has circuitry that tests whether the device you are connecting to is approved by Apple. There is a chip in the chargers, synch leads and adapters of approved accessories. Charging is bad enough, but synching from device to phone, or phone to device is even more sensitive. I bought one adapter lead that didn't work at all and came up with an error message 'this is not an apple approved device'. Then I bough an adapter from eBay, it said it would synch and charge, but in fact it would only charge. Fortunately, that is what I wanted to do. I bought an iPhone 4 charger for the boat, so the adapter worked for me to charge to my iPhone 6.

I have had a kenwood 50wx4 stereo head unit installed in my car for about a year now and have had no problems using any function on the system. However, i recently updated the software on my ipod to newer...


I am having the exact same problem with my iPhone 3GS and the 50wx4. I upgraded to a new software version and am getting the same messages. It's very frustrating. I read on the apple forum that if you turn the iPod/iPhone off by holding down the top buttton and home button at the same time, and then plug it into your car stereo whilst still off then the 2 devices will reconfigure (the iPod should come on when you plug it into the stereo). This did not work for me but did work for some others in the forum, worth a try.

Kenwood Kdc-mp425 will not switch to Aux. Aux cable is connected to the back of the headunit, but no aux option is available on menu for either my ipod touch or my sirius unit. I've accessed the menu from...


Apparently, this auxiliary input only works for a Kenwood CD changer or a sirius radio connection. At least that is my conclusion after finding the same problem. Let me know if you figured anything out on this.

Apple ipod not getting charged


Hello,
First, please check your connection (I'm sure you have already done this). Make sure that the cable is plugged in and working on both ends.
If that is fine, I would recommend taking it back and getting a new one. If you just recently purchased it, you should be able to return without a problem. It sounds like you might have a defective product and you don't want to get stuck with it after the return period.
Good news is that when you get the new one, if you use iTunes, it will automatically sync up and you wont have to manually load songs.
Hope this was helpful but if you still have questions, let me know.
Have a great day

Thanks once again.

Ipod


On the Kenwood models that are within about 6 or 7 years old or newer, there is an iPod adapter for the head units that plugs into the CD Changer port on the back of the radio. Kenwood makes an adapter (KCA-IP500) that gives direct control and charging through the radio and several companies make aux input adapters for Kenwood radios that will connect to the iPod's headphone jack.
